January 19th – January 23rd.
Theatre Academy University of the Arts, Helsinki, Finland.
Workshop led by Emilyn
Falling Out of Line.
This was a week long workshop, exploring a psycho-somatic practice of encounter, falling out fixed notions of identity and social behaviour between us. Through improvisational tasks we experienced a process of unravelling and slowing down our approaches to meeting, greeting, reaching, hugging, laughing, turning towards and away from each other. We found ourselves noticing physical and emotional affects of gestures between us, and how this practice, that interweaves ethics and aesthetics, influences choreographic decision making.
The workshop was attended by post doctoral artist researchers and doctoral research students.
